Another Christmas is over but at least the summer has only just begun! I hope you all received some great pressies and spent some quality time with friends and family. I certainly have. I really love this time of the year as I can truly switch off and relax. It is so nice to have some time to just sit back and cruise. I love that feeling of shopping when I don’t have to rush off to my other commitments and I can just spend some ‘me’ time.
To all those who received Wallis gift vouchers for Christmas, from some fabulous family member that has great taste, I am sure we will be seeing you in store shortly! It is hard to believe that in another month or so our autumn collections will be arriving. Thankfully so many of these pieces are truly trans-seasonal. Layering really is a great thing as it means getting the use out of your clothes year round. Hooray to that!
Keep enjoying that summer and happy shopping.
Insight Jumpsuit | $229
Enjoy this little relaxed jumpsuit from Kowtow. Looks great with a t-shirt underneath or a tank. Made in organic cotton, the simple style is very comfortable against the skin. It has a tie around the waist that can be tied loosely or pulled in to create a leaner fit. Wear it with your favourite sandals or sneakers. A nice addition to your summer wardrobe.
Gosia Piatek | Kowtow
Gosia Piatek knew she wanted to start an ethical company – she just wasn’t sure what kind. When a friend pointed her in the
direction of the garment industry, something clicked. Gosia launched the label in 2007 with $5000 and without any fashion experience just loads of energy. After nearly a year of research Gosia finally found a manufacturer in India that only works with fair trade organic cotton and who could make her vision for an ethically sound label come to life!
So why fair trade? “The idea came about from been fed up with fast fashion. I wanted to influence the industry by having a successful business and only using certified fair trade organic cotton – a business with a true point of difference. I want to show all business owners that it is possible to run a profitable business in an ethical manner.” says the founder and director of Kowtow, Gosia Piatek.
Kowtow designs are instantly recognizable and consistently true to their own unique style. Effortlessly elegant, casual clothes that form dramatic silhouettes, Kowtow is minimalism perfectly executed. Bold graphics, and eco –friendly fabrics make Kowtow garments effortlessly cool. The softness of organic cotton means the clothes also feel incredible against your skin.
